Gimme Five beat Jazzy Lady by seven lengths on his debut at Uttoxeter but was then beaten 11 lengths under a penalty here and looks vulnerable again carrying 7lb extra. MR GALLIVANTER (NAP) would have been the best of these on the Flat and was also placed over 1m4f and 1m6f whereas stamina could be an issue for both Malachim Mist and Ravenous. John Quinn's charge will have had plenty of schooling and is fancied to come out on top with Irish import Relentless Pursuit likely to prove the pick of the remainder.
